Derek Powazek, the SF web designer who brought us the famous Blogger “B,” has joined Technorati. Powazek is the author of the smart book, Design for Community, about building online communities, and years ago he started a storytelling web site called SF Stories. Presumably, this means we’ll see a spiffier-looking Technorati soon.
